Do you want to become a key part of The Place Bedford’s audience experience?
Volunteering for us is an opportunity to help make a visit to The Place Bedford the best night out in town for all our audience members.

By volunteering your Front of House skills – whether at the Box Office, behind the bar, ticketing or ushering – you will become part of a team of theatre-loving people of all ages keen to make the audience experience at The Place as welcoming off-stage as it is exciting on-stage.

As a member of the FOH team you will be directly in contact with our audiences and be part a core part of the friendly team who make up the face of the venue.

You will be integral in forming the culture of the venue with every interaction you make. As well as making new friends, there is the chance to watch a number of our professional shows for free.

Every performance volunteers are required to act as Fire Marshals, who sit in the show and act as ushers during the performances.

You’ll also get the opportunity to book for other shows for free, as a thank you for donating your time to us.

But that’s not all, if you are a volunteer for The Place and you phone us up on the day of the show you can bring a friend along to one of our performances for half price (assuming we still have tickets available!)

The only qualifications you need are good interpersonal skills, a friendly disposition and a love of live performance of all kinds.
